Wine Enthusiast Gigondas Romane Machotte 2017

An 80–20 blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced from high-elevation clay and marl, this rich, supple red offers black-cherry and plum flavors accented by black pepper and charred clove. Aged 12 months in oak, it’s an open-knit, silky sip enveloped by fine, chalky tannins. Immediately enjoyable, the wine should hold through 2027.
